In August, the welding experts at Miller invited Compact Equipment and other media outlets to Green Bay to investigate the Lambeau Field expansion, where some of its newest products are being used. The renovationís being headed by Miron Construction and includes the construction and installation of two jumbo, state-of-the-art scoreboards, the addition of 6,000 new seats, a new entrance at the north side, more elevators and escalators to move fans, a rooftop viewing platform and related structural reinforcements and improvements.
CEís Brad Kramer got the opportunity to visit the jobsite and tour the companyís manufacturing facilities on Aug. 15. As it so happens, the company unveiled a new product for the construction market, and the Miron crew has already put the unit through its paces. Miller hopes its new Trailblazer series welder generators will change the game by operating more fuel efficiently, quieter and with a smaller footprint. The Trailblazer 325 and updated 275 build off Millerís Trailblazer 302. The new models boast up to 50 percent longer run time, using up to 35 percent less fuel, and provide up to 68 percent reduction in sound with an overall smaller footprint (up to 5 in. shorter and up to 108 lbs lighter).
Read more of that story in the October print issue of CE. The video below is actually on dual operator welding systems, also being used on the Lambeau project. Dual operator welding systems provide benefits in terms of productivity and the simplicity of fewer machines on site by providing two industrial-strength welding arcs off of a single machine. Miron Construction used two of Millerís dual operating systems†-- the Big Blue 450 Duo CST and the Big Blue 700 Duo Pro -- to help expedite welding processes on the Lambeau expansion project.
